New Amundi ETFs on Xetra: climate-friendly companies worldwide and emerging market equities
Two new exchange traded funds issued by Amundi have been tradable on Xetra and Börse Frankfurt since Tuesday.
The Amundi MSCI World Climate Paris Aligned PAB UCITS ETF (DR) offers investors access to large and mid-cap companies from 23 developed countries worldwide that are in line with the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement to limit global warming to a maximum of 1.5°C and benefit from measures to combat climate change.
Excluded from the index are companies that have excessive carbon emissions and are exposed to climate change risks such as extreme weather conditions. The same applies to companies that are not in line with the principles of the United Nations Global Compact, are involved in serious ESG-related controversies or are active in the areas of thermal coal, nuclear energy, weapons, gambling, tobacco and genetically modified organisms.
The Amundi Prime Emerging Markets UCITS ETF (DR) (C) offers investors a portfolio covering approximately 85 per cent of large and mid-cap companies from 26 emerging markets by market capitalisation. Companies from Taiwan, India, South Korea, and China are most strongly represented.
